. the question is where do things stand exactly in the battle ground states? the obama campaign has been insistent that they continue to have leads in enough battle ground states to win the election. the romney campaign insists that they are in a position to be able to overtake the president in a number of these states. so, we're playing in part a game of spin. somebody is going to be proven right or wrong. we know that some of these states have tightened up from where they were a month ago. i think that as susan said part of the issue is who is going to be able to get their voters out at this point, under what could be some difficult circumstances? >> woodruff: susan, how are you reading these polls right now? >> i'm struck over and over again by the damage that president obama did to his campaign in that first debate. it's like your mother always told you, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. in this pew poll that is just out, more than a third of voters said their impression of governor romney was improved in that first debate. we know from the usa today gallup po

for the president to try to clench that state? >> because the obama campaign, fred, thinks this is going to be a nail biter and observers agree with them this is going to be a close race. four little electoral votes could really matter. taking a look at the polls, here in new hampshire, president obama has maintained a small lead, but it's within the margin of error on most polls so you can say statistically that mitt romney and president obama are tied and so we've seen president obama pay a lot of attention to this little state. he's been here ten times this year. he just touched down at the manchester airport just minutes ago, so this is his tenth time on the ground here. vice president biden is expected to be here on monday for an event. that storm willing, i should say, and this is an important state, fred, because new hampshire is a place where voters can register to vote on election day. yes, this state was very big for mitt romney in the republican primaries, but the obama campaign feels that they have a really strong get out the vote effort when you look at the campaign offices,

campaigns shuffling their schedules, president obama, mitt romney. a key battleground state. a state you can bet each one of them wanted to get to. if you look at the new poll coming from your paper. mitt romney trailing the president in that state by four points as opposed to eight. the way it was recently. what do you think the storm has impact as far as key states like this? >> again, normally i would say not much. a race this tight, tightening some. any stop that president or mitt romney makes in a local area gets a lot of coverage. draws a lot of people. can be an organizing tool. having to cancel those stops can make an impact on however many were planning to attend. the buzz, they are here, sending competing messages, in terms of earned media as they call it. it's certainly going to make a difference for them. what is being talked about in virginia is largely the storm and not the campaign speeches. it could make a difference. no way to predict which way that cuts. for romney who wants to close that narrowing gap it could be he doesn't get the face time he needs, for obama, he gets to
be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to michigan, and even ohio is touched by the storm. in some ways, the president is sort of locked into position. >> well, virginia's touched by this. pennsylvania very seriously hit by this. there's a lot of overflow into ohio. there's a serious situation there, but the bigger point is that every minute of television today and yesterday and the day before yesterday, every minute was dedicated to this storm which means it took off of people's minds and took off the front burner obama's bad record with bad results which is why he's losing this election because the american people know we don't need 4 more' years of this. to the degree this takes their minds off that, that is mhanna from heaven for barack obama. >> greta: governor, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: and now to libya. seven weeks after terrorists attacked our consulate in benghazi, we still do not have the answers. senator lindsey graham is accusing pres
